    The libs really have their panties in a twist over Arizona. It's amazing to watch.

    The facts of the matter are that the federal government has a Constitutional duty to protect our borders. In an attempt to do that, the federal government has made immigration laws. The fairness of these laws is certainly debatable, however, these are the laws that the federal government has passed. Immigration is a federal jurisdiction.

    A border state, or any state for that matter, can enforce laws when the federal government fails to do so. Arizona has done just that and it highlights the incompetence of the federal government.

    Anything that highlights this incompetence is to be met with hysterics as the Adored one cannot be criticized. Nevermind that this has nothing to do with the Dear Leader at the moment, but reasoning with the emotionally hysterical is rarely possible.

    That "dual sovereignty" thingy really gets under the thin skin of the Stalinist progressive, because they're all about one-party-one-state central control.

    That too - very much. Now they just aren't so shy to display it.

    Oh, yes. This is my opinion as to why the libs are so hysterical. Dude also had a good point.

    The libs are amazingly hysterical over this.

    Is there anything about which they're not hysterical?

    My theory is that it gives 20-somethings something to do on weekends, and allows guys to meet passionate young hawt wimmins.

    That's a damn good point (the former...lol). In general, the libs are driven by feelings more than thoughts. This topic just seems to have lit up the emotional processes in their brains more than usual.

    There was a story in the news in our area last night about a guy (white) who was detained by police after being questioned as to why he was driving through a part of town that is a predominately black neighborhood. So much so that it caught the attention of 2 officers driving through the area. They pulled him over and asked for his ID and when he couldn't provide a current form of ID, was asked to submit to a vehicle search. It was at this time that the officer discovered a large quantity of drugs in the vehicle and after the arrest was made, it was also determined that this clean cut, mid 20's white guy was also a suspect in a double murder that took place 3 weeks ago.

    So, according to the policeman's account, if this guy had not been in the area he was in, he wouldn't have drawn so much attention to himself and they might not have caught him that easily. So is it racial profiling? Or just good cop work? No matter what, look what it did...it got another criminal off the streetsl

    Hysterical? Only with laughter.

    First, you dingbats give us the credit on the finacial regulations bill, cave in when it is obvious that this is playing really poorly in Peoria, and make the President look even stronger.

    Now, one of your dingbat govenors creates a law that gives us the votes of the Americans of Latino descent. And blindly rant and rave about a policy that you had eight years to correct, and you did nothing.

    Sorry, the President has been a bit busy with an economic crisis, health care, and a few other minor things. He will address this soon enough.

    Seems to me like some/most far lefties think everyone but them is a racist. So to them, this law basically arms Arizona law enforcement with a license to racially profile, and because they're racists, they've always wanted to be able to do that and will now abuse their power.
